Congratulations to the winners of our 2017 Euroscola competition! We had asked students to create a one-minute video clip on “Why young people should vote in European Elections” and received lots of entries. Well done to everyone who took part.

A delegation from the Irish Council of Churches, a cross-border body representing different Christian denominations on the island of Ireland visited the European Parliament in Brussels attending the plenary session and meeting MEPs in the context of the Article 17 dialogue process.
Following their meeting today, MEPs on the European Parliament's Brexit Steering Group emphasise the need for more progress in citizens' rights and on the situation on the island of Ireland in a letter to Michel Barner, the EU's chief negotiator.
What will MEPs be working on in next week's plenary session in Strasbourg? Among the items on the agenda will be the Brexit negotiations, Jerusalem as capital of Israel, EU defence policy, and much more.
On 23 June 2016, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU. The decision will take effect on 29 March 2019. The final agreement will require the approval of the European Parliament and MEPs will scrutinise the process carefully. Here we provide some links to help you understand what is going on and who is doing what.
